Increase swapfile size using DOS

While setting up Windows 95, I get error SU 0412. It suggests to increase the swapfile size, an try again. How do I do this? In Config.sys? What command do I have to use?

Windows 95/MS-DOS Clean boot with more memory:
You can increase the amount of memory available by making
the following modifications to your Config.sys file. You
can also make these changes to your Boot Disk as well.
NOTE: These are the only drivers you should load.

Device=Himem.sys
Device=EMM386.exe noems
Dos=high,umb
Device=drvspace.sys /move
      (Optional - only if using DriveSpace compression)

It doesn´t work, even without Device=drvspace.sys /move.
With "Device=drvspace.sys /move" removed from config.sys it still doesn't work!!! While checking for installed components, it still gets up to 77% complete, but that's all. The setup programm halts before reporting that it cannot load "shell2.inf" into its memory or that the file is corrupted. I've done some checking: the file exists and is located in the temporary directory c:\wininst0.400.

I would appreciate any other suggestions you might have to solve this problem, because I'm getting a little desperate.

Just curious but how big is the hard drive you are using ? It could be that you are running out of available disk space.

You should also check that your HD isn't too fragmented since the swap file is stored in an continuous place.
